What would happen if McDonald's were required to be honest -- really honest -- about its processed poultry product, better known as the Chicken McNugget? It would probably look something like this clip from Redacted Tonight.

Ostensibly, this is a "comedy video," but what it comes down to is a goofy "kid" listing all the ingredients in McDonald's chicken nuggets. There are a lot of them, including sodium, sugar and artificial additives -- all of which we probably don't need in our food, and all of which the fast food company underplays while emphasizing the part that's "white meat chicken."

As the character asks midway through his recitation: "Why don't you guys just make it out of chicken?"
